I live straight: Pete Doherty
London: Pete Doherty insists he lives a straight life and his heroin use doesn`t affect his band or duties as a father.

The `Babyshambles` singer has long struggled with drug addiction, but is adamant his continued use of heroin doesn`t affect his day-to-day life.

"We all have our foibles. I live a straight life. It`s so regimented now, it`s not even real chaos, my chaos. I`m very certain of what works and what and who I need to avoid," he said.

The troubled 34-year-old star also hit back at comparisons between him and one of his idols, late soccer star George Best, who succumbed to his battle with alcoholism and eventually died from organ failure in 2005.

"He was also an incredible footballer. Oh, you can`t just condemn people. We`ve gotta support each other, we`re all in it together."
